HONG KONG -- Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific Airways has set its sights on rebuilding mainland Chinese routes and adding new ones to Japan as it strives for a post-pandemic comeback.

CEO Ronald Lam told Nikkei Asia the company will invest more in the Greater Bay Area, a megalopolis of 11 cities in southern China, as Hong Kong increasingly becomes a gateway for travel into and out of the mainland.
